While the frenetic pace of speculation in derivatives has eased a bit recently, it hasn’t stopped, and a chorus of analysts warns the trading remains capable of exacerbating swings in equities. One proxy for the froth still latent in options, the percentage of overall volume represented by single-stock contracts, remains up 19% from a year ago, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co. Most of it is concentrated in megacap technology and momentum-driven shares.

Meanwhile, a large buyer of tech calls dubbed the Nasdaq whale recently resurfaced, purchasing around $200 million worth of call contracts on tech stocks in a single day. The Nasdaq 100 Index has gained in all but two sessions this month and just notched its best week since July after last

Wall Street traders said that an unusual spike in call options on Thursday shows that Japan’s Softbank may once again be betting on large tech stocks, CNBC’s David Faber reports. 

Multiple sources told Faber that there was $200 million spent on Thursday morning on call options for Netflix, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet, with the investment bank being the most likely buyer. 

“A number of sources in the derivative markets on major trading markets noting that significant call buying, and they all point to Softbank as being behind it,” Faber said on “Squawk on the Street.”

Texas QB Sam Ehlinger has plenty of passing options heading into Big 12 opener at Texas Tech

Losing two of the most prolific receivers in program history left Texas with a problem: Where would senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger throw the ball in 2020?

The transfer market and a receiver who sat out 2019 while suspended quickly answered that question for the No. 8 Longhorns.

Joshua Moore scored on the first play of the season against UTEP, graduate transfers Brenden Schooler and Tarik Black both scored, and even walk-on Kai Money found the end zone as Ehlinger tossed five touchdown passes in the first half.

After a week off in which they climbed back into the top 10, the Longhorns open Big 12 play on Saturday at Texas Tech (1-0), which surrendered 527 yards passing yards to Houston Baptist in the Red Raiders’ opener.

Ehlinger spread his five scoring passes around to five receivers. He had to. His favorite targets last season, Devin Duvernay and Collin Johnson, are

Video service Quibi exploring ‘strategic options’ including possible sale

Recently launched streaming service Quibi is reportedly exploring “strategic options,” including the possibility of a sale, as it struggles to hit initial subscriber targets.

The short-form video service, started by Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, first launched in April. Since then, however, the service has reportedly struggled to bring in subscribers in a crowded market.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the service is exploring a variety of options. That could include a sale, raising more money, or going public through a merger with a special purpose acquisition company.

Quibi launched in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The company is likely to miss its initial paid subscriber target by a large margin, and is also facing a patent lawsuit.

The show’s main differentiator was short-form video content that was optimized for mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad. Thus far, that format has apparently left consumers unswayed.

Quibi declined
